I can’t feel entirely bitter over the start of the war today. The Cricket World Cup is almost over, but judging from my form at lunchtime cricket today, I still might have a chance of selection for the West Indian tour. Despite my lingering illness it felt so good out there and I felt my batting was the best it’s been for years. Lots of powerful backfoot shots, plus a couple of front footers. I was seeing the ball so well and was abl to play shots visualised before the ball was bowled.
So I’m boasting. But I had fun, and that’s never a bad thing.
